WM Motor officially initiated the EX5 volume delivery on September 28. By the end of November, the startup has delivered vehicles across 18 cities in China and set up 39 sales and service outlets in 26 cities.

However, the company is unable to complete the delivery target of 10,000 units this year due to the extreme complexity of delivery process, said Freeman Shen, founder, chairman and CEO of WM Motor, when he was interviewed.

The total delivery volume of the NETA N01 is predicted to reach around 1,200 units limited by the insufficient power battery supply.

2019 will be the first year in which at least 1 particular EV model will reach the 100,000 sales milestone in China.

Just like what the Tesla Model 3 has achieved in the US in 2018.

There’s an outside chance BAIC EC-series will do 100k this year.

Chinese government is betting hard for EVs. Good for them!

Nowadays in China, the #1 claim on demonstrations is air pollution. Their ICE engines are older generations licensed by foreign car markers, and their internal market and purchase power increased exponentially… trouble ensured.

Their cars aren’t good for the environment/public-opinion and they could be less reliant on foreign technology and become a the #1 net maker and exporter of vehicles worldwide.

In a few years we’ll start to see new Chinese brands in western countries. It has already taken place in most other products like smartphones, electric bikes or solar panels.

That’s gonna be the best for the planet, thanks China, but it’s gonna kill most western car makers, and EU’s economy will plummet.

Western government are not dumb. The government will tax the Chinese EV higher as preventive measure if they deem Chinese EV a significant threat to EU economy.

Not really, the vehicles emission standards in China now is China Stage V, which is same level as Euro 5, and will be Stage VI by 2020 (Euro 6 and U.S. Tier 2 level). Encouraging EV is more a measure to diversify energy consumption and upgrade industry.

Can’t wait to see a NIO or Byton in Europe. No more German cheatcar for me.

I am glad that Insideevs is opening our eyes to what is happening in China. But as you can see the title here says “some EV Sales Figures”. Nearly half of the EVs sold in the world is in China. So please note that if the US stops EVs for some reason or another China will not. I also see Korea as a big success story. There are many stories here on Insideevs about European EVs. I personally think that none of the European cars will succeed. So China Korea and the USA are the ones that will dominate the world of EVs. MB BMW VW etc will all die. Tesla is the only hope for the US. And it surprises me that there are some states that do not allow Tesla to sell directly in their stats. As if Tesla is sme foreign company!
